Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderator◆, but I sometimes visit some other Stack Exchange sites (more to read than anything else).

I first got into computers in 1982, and learned to program on an Apple //+. Switched to Mac in 2003. I'm not a computer pro; it's just a hobby. I hope any of my questions or answers are helpful.

Questions about Ask Different moderation? Contact me at daniel.ask.different@gmail.com

You had three questions in here. This site works better when there is only one question per question. That way, it's easier for other people to find solutions if they have the same problem. I've edited out your other two questions, but feel free to ask them separately.

comment Who installed this Emacs?
You want /usr/bin/emacs to invoke the default version. You can safely install your own programs in /usr/local/bin. If you want your own programs to preempt the system versions, make sure /usr/local/bin is earlier in your path than /usr/bin and /bin, but be warned that this creates a security hole if someone with admin privileges on your system installs a /usr/local/bin version of some other program with unexpected results.

But someone else just might come up with an even better answer, as happened here.

You've posted this as an answer, which is only for things that directly answer the question asked.

comment Is there a way to unlock a password protected iPad?
Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone.

Reinstalling is a solution. This is, technically, an answer.
